It's that time of the year again: When newspapers take a break from reporting actual news and pad column inches with "the year that was" facts and retrospectives. In compiling ours (look out for it on Wednesday!) we queried the OLCC with the top selling liquor in Oregon this year.

Being able to track this kind of data is one of the few advantages to this nanny control state of ours.

So what was Oregon imbibing this year?
